Red lipstick, glamour hits a classic note
Makeup tips to wear the must-have lipstick shade
Go ahead and wear RED!
Can I wear red lipstick? It’s funny how many people ask me that question.

There are all sorts of famous faces, both iconic and contemporary, that we identify with red lipstick such as Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry, Dita Von Tesse, Kate Bosworth, Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz, Snow White, Grace Kelly, Geishas, and many more. Some are sexy. Some are pouty. Some are simple and clean. But all make a statement with bold red lips.?
